Who doesn’t love a bit of bubbly in their cocktail? The Pearfect Harmony blends a together variety of spirits and flavors resulting in a cocktail mixture that is truly singular. While the ingredients of this recipe are full of flavor on their own, when shaken up together the result is a well-balanced drink.
Many of you know I love a good flavored vodka to bring a special touch to a cocktail recipe. Pear vodka is one of my favorites due to its subtle sweetness. You can truly taste the essence of ripe pears while still having those clean, smooth notes of traditional vodka. Another Queen Bee favorite is the addition of elderflower liqueur. I tend to use St. Germain, but there are a variety of different brands you can choose from.
This liqueur brings a delicate floral note, subtly complementing the pear’s sweetness. Its nuanced aroma adds depth without overpowering the cocktail’s gentle nature. I can say that a little goes a long way with most elderflower liqueurs, so keep that in mind when mixing it into your favorite cocktail or bubbly.
Of course, we can’t forget the citrusy element needed in any cocktail recipe. Lemon juice cuts through the sweetness, adding brightness and zest. It balances the drink, ensuring it doesn’t become overly sweet or cloying.
And finally, a touch of bubbly to top off the Perfect Harmony. The crisp and dry nature of champagne rounds off the drink, melding the flavors and offering a delightful finish.
Step 1: Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker topped with ice. Shake until chilled.
Step 2: Strain into a glass over fresh ice.
Step 3: Top off with champagne and garnish.
There you have it, with a few simple steps you’ve got a delicious cocktail ready to be sipped on! The Pearfect Harmony is a well-rounded cocktail that I’ve spent most weekends shaking up as of lately. I can’t wait for you to give it a go, it truly is a treat.
